The first T20I between New Zealand and England will take place on November 1 at Hagley Oval, Christchurch at 1:00 am GMT.
Predicted Playing XI
Colin Munro, Martin Guptill, Tim Seifert, Ross Taylor, Colin de Grandhomme, James Neesham, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson
Jonny Bairstow, Tom Banton, James Vince, Eoin Morgan, Joe Denly, Sam Billings, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Matt Parkinson
Tim Siefert is a good pick from New Zealand, who will not only fill the wicket keepers section but also has good prospect of giving points as a batsman. Openers Colin Munro and Martin Guptill can give good returns, but it is important to keep their price tag in mind. And the kind of batsman Ross Taylor is, he should be one of the first choices in any fantasy team. Lockie Ferguson is a dependable bowler to pick from the New Zealand team.
Captain Eoin Morgan’s hard hitting capabilities make a great choice for captain along with opening batsman Jonny Bairstow. Among bowlers, Adil Rashid can bowl dot balls and pick wickets in the middle overs, giving good returns.
Top captaincy picks:
New Zealand had announced the absence of Kane Williamson, who is not included in the squad. From the announced squad members, neither of the teams have any injury concerns. Injury will be updated as any news comes up.
New Zealand have won two of their last five meetings with England with England winning the other three.
